Join us for the kickoff fundraising event for "The Journey Back Project". The event is being hosted by A Bridge to Hope: a local nonprofit organization that provides free mental health resources in the community. A Bridge to Hope has partnered with Ames Productions to create a public awareness film that provides the public a look into the mental health system and how it works for some of our most medically fragile citizens.
This exciting event will raise funds to continue the work that is being done by A Bridge to Hope as well as begin to fund the documentary to tell the stories. Come join us to network, learn more about the project and find out how you can help be a part of this endeavor!

The Journey Back Project connects resources, support, placement services and temporary housing with the people who are in critical need.
Every day in America thousands of people face danger, homelessness, fear, and despair because they are not getting the treatment they need for mental illness. These people—our neighbors, family, friends and members of our communities—are often locked in an endless cycle of breakdown, arrest, hospitalization & then back on the streets; facing this challenge, they struggle to find a level of normalcy in their lives.
The doctors, nurses, counselors, and law enforcement professionals who do their best are overwhelmed as they try to find help. Health professionals become frustrated as they are unable to do what is best for patients in the short term, which is a necessary first step to help them transition to a life of dignity and respect.
We spend millions of dollars of public money reacting, but important changes and new practices to address these needs on a proactive basis can provide the foundation for long-term success and a more effective use of public resources.
The Journey Back Project was created to facilitate this. Healthcare professional Kyle Carlson saw people the community often overlooks, people who just need some compassion and some practical help. This organization is his effort to help solve this crisis.
The Journey Back Project This non-profit organization is driven by two mutually supportive missions:
1. To raise awareness;
2. To implement practical solutions to this crisis.
The Journey Back Project "Many of the individuals I have worked with just needed a safe place to begin the journey back to normalcy.
Kyle gave them that opportunity."
